Saturday, December 18th
Superdome - New Orleans, LA


In one of the most evenly matched bowl games of the season, the Troy Trojans and the Ohio Bobcats face off in the New Orleans Bowl. The latest college football odds posted for this game, have the Trojans favored by just one point, an indication of just how close this game can be.

Ohio is led by quarterback Boo Jackson, who has thrown for 1,688 yards and 15 touchdowns, and is the Bobcats all-time leader in completion percentage, pass efficiency, touchdown passes, total offense per play and passing yards per attempt.

While they have a solid leader under center the strength of the Bobcats offense is the rushing attack that notched 25 touchdowns on the season. The Bobcats will play physical and use the wildcat formation to attempt to confuse the Trojans defense.

Troy hammered Florida Atlantic last Saturday to grab a share of their fifth consecutive Sun Belt Conference title. Running back Shawn Southward leads Troy with 552 yards and will be the main weapon on the ground but he has some help. Senior DuJuan Harris and sophomores Chris Anderson and D.J. Taylor all contribute on a quick paced offense that attacks opposing defenses.

Ohio will match up well on defense and this game has the potential to be one of the most entertaining bowl games of the season.

The Trojans are 2-7 against the spread (ATS) in their last none games as a favorite and 1-4-1 ATS in their last six non-conference games. The Bobcats are 7-1 ATS in their last eight games as an underdog, 5-1 ATS against a team with a winning record, and 7-2 ATS in their last nine games overall.

The Bobcats enter this bowl game riding a seven game winning streak and will get the upset in the New Orleans Bowl.

BTB's Pick: Ohio +1.5
